Often times we get bogged down in life with all the pressures of paying bills, stress at our jobs or just life obstacles. We forget to enjoy and embrace the present time and the current stage we’re currently in. During this past holiday season, I’ve heard people say things like “Why am I not happy what am I doing wrong?” In an age of abundance, this question still resonates today for many of us aren’t happy for various of reasons. Maybe we don’t like our current job or career path regardless of what it may be we all have the ability to do anything we put our minds to.
Time is of the Essence
No matter what stage we are in our life there is one thing that always stands true for any situation we cannot go back in time, nor can we take time from our future. A wise man once told me that we have two options in life one to achieve anything we want in life if we put our mind to it, and two we’re all going to die one day so we have to take advantage of the days we have on this earth. There is no time like the present to follow your dreams, start a business, try a new workout routine, travel the world, spend time with your love ones. The possibilities are endless when we focus on the present and let the past mistakes, mishaps or failures go.
As humans, we have the tendency to look at what we don’t have or what we’re not good at. Instead of focusing our energy towards what we can do well and all the blessings that have been given to us. Many times, we tend to dwell on things we cannot change or are not willing to do the necessary steps to change. This usually causes us to think that we’re not good enough, because we fill our minds with negative thoughts that can interfere with our predestined success. Adopting the mindset of the cup half full instead of half empty can determine whether or not we will ever reach our goals.
In the end, there is no time like the present embrace the current stage in your life. Stop worrying about all the things you did or didn’t do in the past. Stop worrying about all the things you need to accomplish enjoy this moment. Enjoy the people in your life that make you smile and bring you joy!
“Learn, embrace and love your past but don’t dwell on things you cannot change. Learn to live in the present and love every moment of it”
